Simpsons 2 band hair wasn’t always great. In fact, it was down right bad in the not too distant past. But then, they picked up in quality and made this fine specimen of a brush. Truly gel-like tips, this 2 band hair is a winner. Simpson is known for their quality handles and this one does not disappoint. In fact, nothing at all is disappointing about this brush except the price and the size. And the size is my personal preference.
